Kiko Argüello is a painter and sculptor born in León in 1939. The Spanish artist is the initiator, together with Carmen Hernández and Father Mario Pezzi, of the Neocatechumenal Way, an itinerary of Catholic formation and evangelisation.
Argüello has studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid, graduating as professor of painting and drawing.
Since he was young, he has drawn attention to his works, joining in 1959 the first Youth Art Competition organised by the Delegación Nacional de Juventudes del Movimiento Nacional and winning a special prize for painting in the 14-21 years category. Following a deep existential crisis, he undergoes a serious conversion, after which he has dedicated his life to Jesus Christ and the Church, especially working as teacher in the ‘Cursillos de Cristianinad’ in Madrid, Ceuta, Cáceres and in other regions of Spain.
Kiko Argüello chose Fonderia Nolana for the realisation of the monumental work “Il Sermone della Montagna” in Israel.
